As defined in:

%r -> locales representation of time + AM/PM
%e -> %d
%h -> %b
%D -> %m/%d/%y
%R -> %H:%M
%T -> %H:%M:%S
%n/%t -> whitespace

If these codes are supported in strptime, they must also be
supported in strftime. But the platform strftime is not
guaranteed to support these escapes on e.g. Windows.

I don't know if rewriting strftime in Python makes sense.

Anyhow, turning this into a feature request.
